disappearing coins/cards on sliding cup holder

Post by Atomic120 » Sun Aug 11, 2019 7:43 pm

Try something out and explain were the coins go !!!!!!

Put a coin on the center sliding cup holder cover , slide it back and watch the coin disappear I have lost countless coins this way ( not deliberately ) , how do I get them back or are they falling out the gap at the bottom .

I'd hate to think what you could spend it on over there.

Yeah, never watched it but guessing a stranger things reference...

They're probably in the void under the armrest, sitting on the carpet.

If you’re feeling brave you could try this............... at your own risk! ;)
This may give you access to the ‘void’ underneath

I have had the rear panel on the console off to install a new power outlet in the console bin and from memory it was not a big deal or difficult to do.

Thanks for the diagram , I have taken the panel off and sure enough all my money is stacked on the carpet , I used a magnet on a stick to pull the further ones out and now I am £ 4,70 better off !

If you fit one of these armrest trays from Amazon you’ll have somewhere to safely keep your loose change..........
